Support » Plugin: Slideshow Reloaded » Some settings don’t save

  • With an existing slideshow “imported” from the old slideshow plugin, I try changing the “Pause slideshow when mouse hovers over” option from Yes to No. I click Update. The page refreshes… and the setting is unchanged. Same for a couple of others.

    Expected behaviour: settings should be changeable!

    Found the source of the problem: my slideshow has over 100 entries, and that comes up against the PHP max_input_vars setting, which defaults to 1000. Counting all the edit fields of every single slide equals more than the limit, so not everything was getting through. I upped the limit in my php.ini and it’s now working.

    Suggestion for this plugin’s developer: use a little bit of JavaScript to amalgamate the fields and strip out unused ones. Also, do a quick check of the number of $_POST vars and compare with the setting to warn the user that there may be a problem.
